Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/1.5.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060909 Firefox/1.5.0.7

Sometimes, I need to open messages that look suspicious to me. 
In order to prevent maximum damage, I exit TB and restart it again without providing the password to my private keys in the Security Device.

When having multiple accounts, this results almost endlessly being asked to provide the password (see also Bug 355903) and then Thunderbird hangs  :(

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Alt-Ctrl-Del needed to be able to continue to work

Expected Results:  
each prompt says why (see also Bug 355903), and if I decline to provide the password, TB should say, "o.k. then I
- cannot get the messages for account X
  or
- I can get messages from the account, but you will not be able to send signed, messages,
  or
- ..."
